Creating Custom Startup Parameters File

You can create your own custom .vmoptions files and the application and the executable tools will automatically include your custom parameters at startup. The following custom files are recognized by the application and the executable tools:
  • custom_commons.vmoptions - The parameters and their values of this file will be included in all the startup launchers.
  • custom_<app name>.vmoptions - The <app name> is the name of the executable application or tool (for example, custom_diffFiles.vmoptions for the Compare Files tool). The parameters and their values of this file will be included in the startup launcher for this particular executable.

For example: To specify a different language for all launchers you can use the custom vmoptions file called custom_commons.vmoptions and the content would look like this:

-Dcom.oxygenxml.language=French
For example: To increase the memory available for a specific tool, such as the Compare Files tool (diffFiles.exe), you can use a custom vmoptions file called custom_diffFiles.vmoptions and the content would look like this:
-Xmx1000m

To be recognized and included, these custom startup parameter files must be saved in the installation directory of Oxygen XML Developer.
